video: Occupy Wall St. as sung by Frank Sinatra

Inspirational and brutal; this brilliant video by Casey Neistat with a soundtrack of the classic Kander and Ebb theme shows one side of the story. Hopefully I will figure out how to edit my less violent footage and post it this weekend!

Wow, that was amazing. What an incredible ending. The plutocrats and oligarchs have really twisted democracy around, stomped on it, and poisoned the "just taking orders" NYPD.

This video made my cry. What in the hell has this city come to? None of this violence was necessary. The mayor and the commissioner better wise up. All of the protesters in this video were young people. It's not good for a country (or this city) when the young are disenfranchised and feel they have nothing to lose. What a disgrace.

What a shame that we see such a clear line of separation between the citizens of this country and the police (public servants?) who are meant to protect and serve it's citizens. Clearly, they have been forced to choose the side of a Mayor who has cowardly thrown them in to do his dirty work, yet they are still part of the 99%, who serve their master. How is it possible we have come so far, yet still do not realize that we are (mostly) all in the same boat, which has hit it's tipping point?

A group of elementary school children with the help of their teacher Mr John Olbert produced a video by using a song I composed entitled We Did The Wild Life Boogie. This is a song regarding jobs and the economy. Please click Like the kids would like that :)
